The Hofbrauhaus now plans to open "in October/November" according to Managing Partner Kevin Townsell. Townsell had initially hoped the new Hofbrauhaus on 190 Scott Street could be open by Labor Day of 2018.

Managing Partner Kevin Townsell says that the new Hofbrauhaus will employ 100 employees that will serve food and beer to the over 900 customers that can fit in the beer hall. 

Hofbrauhaus Buffalo will include a brewery that will create several beers using German recipes. Equipment that will be used to make the beer arrived from Austria earlier this week. "It's kind of symbolic." said Townsell. "It's a milepost for us. We hope that we are within a couple of months of being ready to go"

If everything goes well, Hofbrauhaus is hoping to expand and include a hotel and banquet hall.
